ARTISTS
Gemma Fala
I am a passionate Welsh artist, formerly trained and graduated in Architectural Stained Glass (BAHons) and Currently studying part time, a Masters in Art Psychotherapy. I have displayed my works in Galleries, been successful on entering art competitions, provided commissioned work- public and private sector, and most recently hosting Art and Glass workshops.

I began to take an interest in Art at a very young age. It was my way of expressing my inner feelings and emotions without anyone knowing what meaning the images held. It held almost a magical, mystical power at the tips of my fingers. Later in life it became a therapeutic tool, which led me to study Art Psychotherapy today.

Gemma Fala is available for private bookings

Available most;
Saturdays and Sundays 12:30pm-10pm

Title or Location: A portrait of some friends
I used to love paper crafting as a kid and recently decided to pick it back up again. Some friends have recently bought a house and I wanted to make them a little gift so decided to try my hand at a paper and card portrait! I've got lots of craft paper that o got at a charity shop past year so went through and found pieces I thought would work, cut out all the bits, assembled them and added some detail in pen and coloured pencil. My first time doing something like this and it came out good! I'm

Title or Location: The Girls
This is Isla, Ellie and Millie. Oil on canvas 27.5 inches x 39.5. They are my friends daughters. I often ask how 'the girls' are doing and there's always a funny story. Isla is full of mischief. Ellie is the sassy budding artist and Millie is a 'little devil' in the best way. I thought it was important to try and capture each of their personalities by working and finishing one at a time. They are beautiful girls. This was a pleasure to paint and I feel it has really tested my ability. I've defin

Title or Location: Memories of Bassano Del Grappa
A beautiful town in northern Italy - a town who protected partisans during WW2 and suffered the loss of all men and boys as retribution. Today it still bears the marks of war on the walls of the town, with the wooden bridge having been rebuilt a number of times due to war. This mosaic commission was created for a much happier reason, to commemorate a long held friendship between two families, here in Australia and there in Italy. Entirely created with hand cut pieces of glass.
